Yes it is archaic that they don't have remote voting. I hope they don't start coming down with the virus in large numbers.

Bernie needs to take care of his health. He has integrity in my eyes, don't see this situation as any sort of appropriate test of that.

yes, those of you who are giving him shit for this absolutely are being huge assholes.
If this was a U2 related discussion about Stand Up Comedy, you'd be the blind sheep who would proclaim it as the best U2 rocker ever!!!!111 Sure, call us assholes, but it goes both ways. We're allowed to be critical of Bernie if we want. It doesn't make us assholes. In fact, you're the one that flips out everytime and then reverts to victim mode the minute someone has enough of you and gets a little aggressive.

criticizing bernie doesn't make you an asshole.

criticizing anybody (particularly a high-risk individual in already-shaky health) in a time of a global pandemic for putting their health first over scoring a political point makes you an asshole.

you would do everything you could to prevent one of your grandparents or parents from going into that kind of situation in a million years if you care about them at all. if some random insisted that them not going into that situation made them a hypocrite, you'd rightfully call that person an asshole.

so no, this is not a knock on bernie's character or integrity no matter how desperately you obviously wish that to be the case. this is just you being an asshole.

you wouldn't let your grandfather or father go into that situation in a million years if you care about them at all. so no, this is not a knock on bernie's character or integrity no matter how desperately you and headache obviously wish that to be the case.
I think maybe you should take a step back and read your own posts, and then decide if you still think it's wise to assign maturity levels to other people's posts.

You should read not only your own, but everyone else’s. Most people agree that the notion of a 78-year-old man showing up to score political points only is stupid, especially when people like Rand Paul are scoring political points by intentionally showing up to work carrying a disease that would give someone like Bernie Sanders a 25% chance of dying.

Did you forget? He had a freaking heart attack.

Instead of wagging your finger humorously targeting Sanders’ integrity (what on earth has Sanders done to suddenly seem to lack integrity in your eyes?), maybe consider pointing your energy at something that literally everyone on both sides of the isles will agree is stupid: Congress is mass gathering because they’re required to do so, when in times like this they should absolutely be voting remotely.

He made his point in a confrontational way, I'll grant you that. But you've yet to respond to the actual point he's making, which is, I dare say, pretty reasonable, and are instead going after him personally.

I meant what I said. I can be an asshole too and I know it. And just because Diemen chose to single my post out instead of yours doesn't mean that you shouldn't tone it down and own it too.

But anywho, I apologize. Stressful times for all and just didn't appreciate being referred to as an asshole repeatedly.

Hope all is well, Dave.

I'd have much easier time believing the whole "he didn't show up Sunday because he is trying to protect his health" if, ya know, he wasn't on the floor of the Senate today.

I'm not even paying attention to who is there and who isn't there, for the sake of this country I just hope they don't start dropping like flies. Things are bad enough without Trump rule by executive order.

Maybe the fact he’s had a heart attack at his age means he should take a back seat wjth the whole Presidential thing....

And I’m not downplaying Biden’s mental health either but that’s a little more difficult to gauge since he’s Always screwed up his speech (from conditions he can’t control with stuttering, and the fact he’s an odd dude)
